Saturday Evening Lecture Series 2014

Sir Max Hastings - Catastrophe

Sir Max Hastings lecture will cover highlights from his best-selling new book, Catastrophe, which tells the story of how Europe went to war in 1914 precipitating the first of the 20th century’s great global tragedies.

Author of twenty-four books, many of them about war, he was educated at Charterhouse and University College, Oxford, which he left after a year to become a journalist. He has reported from sixty-four countries and eleven conflicts, notably the 1973 Arab-Israeli War, Vietnam and the 1982 battle for the Falklands. Between 1986 and 2002 he was editor-in-chief of the Daily
Telegraph, then editor of the Evening Standard. He has won many prizes both for journalism and for his books.

This lecture takes place as part of World War 1 Centenary events and as this years’ Graduates’ Council Annual Discovery Lecture.

A civic reception and book signing will follow this lecture.
